Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Varicose vein treatment. Leg of a patient undergoing endovenous laser (EVL) treatment for varicose veins. A laser fibre (narrow tube, centre right) is being inserted into a laser sheath (not seen) in the affected vein. The laser is passed through the sheath and into the vein. It is then withdrawn down the vein at a set rate heating it from within and effectively sealing it as it passes. EVL treatment is non-surgical and is performed under local anaesthetic, as an outpatient procedure.
